SEATTLE, WA—Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is significantly expanding its capacity to advise charitable foundations, nonprofit healthcare organizations, and other tax-exempt clients with the addition of Thomas C. Schroeder, who brings to the firm more than 15 years’ experience representing high-profile national institutions, both in-house and in private practice.
Schroeder comes to Davis Wright from the Office of the General Counsel at the University of California, where he served for almost a decade, advising on nonprofit organization and charitable giving matters. Previously he worked in-house at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, a $13+ billion private foundation. Schroeder launched his legal career as an associate in Davis Wright’s highly-regarded Tax-Exempt Organizations (TEO) practice group, to which he now returns as a partner in Seattle.
Schroeder graduated from Bowdoin College, summa cum laude, with an A.B. in Art History and English. He later got his J.D., with honors, from the University of Washington School of Law.
